About this event

The Living/Dying Alliance of Southern Oregon presents . . .


What are ways we can honor, mourn, and remember a loved one together with family and friends - even when we're not "in person" due to Covid or other travel limitations?

Holly Pruett, a Life-Celebrant and Home Funeral Guide, will walk us through various options for planning virtual memorials and celebrations of life that connect us, as well as ideas for heartfelt synchronized rituals we can create without the use of technology.

We'll also touch upon how to include others from a distance at “home funerals” and burials, when a few people may still gather together.

Join us as we are guided by Holly's knowledge and listen to her and others’ experiences of what works well (and what might not) when planning meaningful ceremonies in these days of physical distancing.
